Jack Kerouac recorded player stats, analyzed their performance and wrote about them in a homemade newsletter. Sound familiar? The only difference of course is that Kerouc made up his teams, the athletes, and their stats.

In looking over his roster I wouldn’t mind trading BJ Upton to the Fords for Pancho Villa. Upton has been awful this year and I hear there is a lot of potential upside with Villa.
